Dental Bonding | Denton, TX
If you’re not happy with your smile because of gaps, staining, or chips and damage to your teeth, then dental bonding (composite veneers) may be the solution that can lead you to a better smile. Bonding refers to the application of composite veneers, which is tooth-colored resin that can be shaped and then polished to match your other teeth in only minutes. It’s a less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers and can be used to fill in gaps, improve the look of a damaged or stained tooth, and can even be used to change the shape of teeth or make them longer for a more even and uniform look overall. It is also a great alternative to traditional amalgam fillings for cavities.
After a meeting with Denton Smiles Dentistry and deciding that improving your smile with dental bonding is something that you would like to do, a shade guide will be used to select the color of resin that best matches your teeth. The surface of your existing tooth/teeth will be etched lightly to help roughen it up and a special primer liquid will be applied to help the bonding agent adhere properly. The resin, which has a consistency similar to putty, will then be applied to the tooth and then shaped and smoothed to get the desired look that works with your other teeth. A special light or laser is then used to help harden the resin after which your dentist will perfect the tooth’s appearance through trimming, filing, and polishing.
One of the best benefits of bonding is how quickly it can be done. The entire process of dental bonding (composite veneers) can be completed in approximately 30 minutes, though multiple teeth will likely require more time. This quick and cost-effective procedure can help you get achieve a beautiful and flawless smile faster than any other cosmetic dentistry procedure. And when cared for properly, you can enjoy your new smile for several years.
